#7 [grace] Illustrated Faith Gratitude Documented 2018
“Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” -Romans 5:20 (ESV)
Perfect people can follow the law and never break it. Jesus was the only one who ever accomplished this. Imperfect people cannot follow the law and will break it. We are not Jesus, not matter how hard we try to be like Him. That’s why He created grace- for every single moment when we aren’t perfect. Which is all the time.

"Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing." -James 1:2-4 (ESV)
#19 [authenticity] Illustrated Faith Gratitude Documented 2018
“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain.” -1 Corinthians 15:10 (ESV)
Don’t apologize for you who are and who you are becoming. You may have screwed up a lot of things in the past but this is still who God is calling you to be. You’re exactly where He wants you to be.
Stay true to Him and you’ll be true to yourself.
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." -Joshua 1:9 (ESV)
This is an easy layout if you want to make better use out of your tiny stickers or stamps. I used up a bunch of my tiny stickers and stuck them on top of mason jar stickers (Michaels?) with a coordination word on top of things that come out of us. Some we need to reach more for everyday and some we need to keep in the jars. I did a wooden background with some metal washi tape (neither of which you can really see) to make it look like they were sitting on a shelf. If you don't have mason jar sticker or stamp, print some off the internet and fill them up yourself (:
**The right side of the page has a journaling card on top that I journaled a prayer in.

“But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.” -Job 12:7-10 (ESV)
I peeled apart some old photos of mine I printed a long time ago and made a gorgeous eye-catching photography collage with some magazine cut outs on the right side.
